Dropped in here last night to watch the Ireland v Denmark game and have dinner. The food was excellent unlike the match result!
The place is huge and very busy but nevertheless the service was first class. Our young waitress was fantastic. Extremely friendly,welcoming and super efficient. A major asset to the place.
The food was really good. Fish and chips wonderful though the chips a little disappointing. Mega burger amazing.
The gin and tonic cheese cake was to die for.
All in all a lovely night with superb food and fantastic service.
Would highly recommend.

Dear Brendan D,

Needless to say your review shocked and surprised us. Our bar prices are perfectly in line with similar businesses in the area, and if you read back through reviews our staff are regularly complimented for their friendly nature.

Your feedback has been brought to the attention of management but with such a vague review it's difficult to discuss further.

Many thanks,

The Front Door Pub.

Stopped for dinner in early November. It was nearly empty in the restaurant. We had seafood chowder, shepherds pie and fish and chips. Everything was delicious. Especially the bread pudding for desert- soooo good!!!!
After dinner went upstairs to other bar for some drinks. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would recommend.

Was in the bar on saturday night for dinner and drinks. Ordered the mega burger i have to say i have never had a burger as tasty!! It was something you could eat constantly. My partner got the steak sandwich which he really enjoyed and garlic bread to start. They have a massive selection of gin and my boyfriend said the nicest pint of heineken he has ever had. They were playing sports on tv and had great music playing. The food came out quite quickly. There was a great atmosphere and seemed to have plenty of tourists coming in. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. 100% recommend for a bite to eat or a night out. They also have to really nice smoking areas so its never too busy.

As usual, we found this place by accident.

What a great find !

Excellent selection of food, wines, beers and spirits. Just what you need, when hungry and wet in rainy Galway.

Our party of 5 ate here one lunchtime, and found the food excellent and the service equally so.
